A mobility dealer has opened a new specialist shoe shop concept within its Glasgow superstore, which aims to offer an alternative to high street shoe stores and mobility retail outlets with a limited selection.
Mobility Solutions’ new shop-in-shop features a diagnostics machine to help specify the correct footwear for customers, who need a solution to problems such as bunions and swollen feet.
The new shoe shop was opened after Mobility Solutions identified footwear, including specialist shoes and slippers, as one of its best-selling product lines.
The retailer has tripled the size of its footwear range, bringing in new products to bolster its offering.
It has increased its Cosyfeet range, which is one of its most popular product lines, and has also expanded its selection of Padders footwear. The Padders range is also being launched online as part of the retailer’s growing e-commerce operation.
The footwear supplied by Mobility Solutions is designed to be easy to put on and take off, caters for wide or swollen feet and is sturdy enough to provide support. The store hopes that it can help alleviate mobility issues, which it turn can cause difficulty in walking and lack of confidence when moving.
Mobility Solutions, which has two stores in Scotland, is part of the Allied Vehicles Group, which is a manufacturer and supplier of adapted and special purpose vehicles and also produces wheelchair accessible cars, MPVs and minibuses.
